Country: USA
Price: $30.00
Original copies of this 1977 release, in shrink. Number eight on Alan Lichts original "Minimal Top Ten." "CYCLES and UNTITLED are two compositions that represent some of Gibsons work combining elements of structure with elements of improvisation. CYCLES is an environmental, textural piece that is essentially improvised on a constantly shifting seven-note melodic progression in four-part harmony. It explores some of the sound capabilities of the pipe organ by using sustained tones in various groupings, clusters, and stop-settings. UNTITLED is essentially a long melody that repeats and expands upon itself within the framework of a given scale and pitch range. The written score simply indicates the note sequence to be observed. Other musical elements, such as phrasing, articulation, rhythm, tempo, dynamic range, and feeling, are determined spontaneously by the performer, within a general stylistic framework. UNTITLED has also been performed as a duet and a trio." - Chatham Square.
